Everyone wants a Mercedes pick-up, right?

The Monterey auctions may be online, but these 8 oddballs keep it weird

Although some of the Monterey auctions have been canceled outright this year, the major ones—including RM Sotheby’s, Bonhams, and Gooding & Co.—have moved online, so there are still plenty of dream cars to drool over. As always, there are also several unusual and downright weird cars on offer that appeal to the folks with more eccentric tastes.

‘ The Legacy Power Wagon is country cool with a capital K. Legacy Classic Trucks in Jackson Hole, Wyo., takes iconic 4WD Dodge Power Wagons from 1945-1968 and restores them to their original glory and beyond. Well beyond.

“The original trucks will go maybe 40 mph, and the brakes sometimes work,” said Legacy founder Winslow S. Bent. “I felt if we could modify these things so they’d go 80 mph and pull horse trailers, then maybe high-end clientele would be interested in them.” ‘

A friend had a '63 Power Wagon. What a total beast. PTO front winch, and that 318 wide block of course had the intake manifold the size of a dinner table. I had a matching green Belvedere with the wide "polyspheric" 318 as well.

Those PTO winches could pull the truck vertical up a tree if you were crazy enough.

That looks like the Ecto-1 of the off-road world. Is there a bumper dumper on the rear trailer hitch?

Without a doubt, Mercedes can make some absolutely ugly vehicles.



It's as though some of their designers said 'To make people appreciate our great looking vehicles, let's make some ugly ones. With our three point star in the grille, they'll sell anyway'.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
